It's not "being negative" or "hateful", it's just you being unable to accept that people think different than you

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:28

One of many things that I don't like about positive movements, communities who spread positivity and vice versa, is their inability to accept that people think and say different things. Things that will be the opposite of how they think, that's just simply an opinion.

The one key flaw with positive-everything is the oblivious nature and to be complacent with everything around. Like being excited about a new game and completely disregarding about who's making it, what that game could have that people may not like and knowing the history about a company that's publishing it. "IT'S JUST A NEW GAME GAIS! GIVE IT A CHANCE!" these positive people cry. Then they proceed to go on miniature crusades against anyone that expresses opposing views, be it constructive or irrational. It doesn't matter.

You just cannot have it one way, all the time. It's like people who want love in the world and no hate. You cannot have such a world because it simply does not work that way. They claim that "they know" but they really don't, because they don't care. Too many times, have I've been excommunicated, by friends who're so destined to have nothing but positive environments, positive friends, positive everything until it's to a point where it becomes hive minded. It becomes annoying and obnoxious to be around, that it ironically brews the very things positive individuals strive to be against - hate and negativity. Just like it can get tiring, to hate things all the time until you start liking it, somehow.

Some people are just too babied.

Dostoyevski's spot-on description of socialism written in the 1800s.

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:24

Everything with them is "the influence of environment," and nothing else. Their favorite phrase! From which it follows that, if society is normally organized, all crime will cease at once, since there will be nothing to protest against and all men will become righteous in one instant. Human nature is not taken into account, it is excluded, it's not supposed to exist!

They don't recognize that humanity, developing by a historical living process, will become at last a normal society, but they believe that a social system that has come out of some mathematical brain is going to organize all humanity at once and make it just and sinless in an instant, quicker than any living process!

That's why they instinctively dislike history, "nothing but ugliness and stupidity in it," and they explain it all as stupidity! That's why they so dislike the living process of life; they don't want a living soul! The living soul demands life, the soul won't obey the rules of mechanics, the soul is an object of suspicion, the soul is retrograde!

You can't skip over nature by logic. Logic presupposes three possibilities, but there are millions! Cut away a million, and reduce it all to the question of comfort! That's the easiest solution of the problem!

It's seductively clear and you mustn't think about it. That's the great thing, you mustn't think! The whole secret of life in two pages of print!

My assumption about 3.10 league after connecting two themes people see and point to: Maelstorm of Chaos (revisited and expanded beta end game, not map)

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:20

Hey,

So if you remember the old, old end game in form of Maelstorm of Chaos - there are a lot of pieces that would fit the found out themes and keywords.

Maelstorm - fits the water theme.

Chaos - fits the madness/asylum theme.

Old end game in form of Maelstorm of Chaos - was inifinite progression linear end game - Delve.

I've read some mentions of Leviathans - which could be expanding upon this mechanic, as there were no bosses there - so maybe now there are?

So my assumption would be revisited Maelstorm of Chaos - possibly under new name, which would be something between Delve and Synthesis - another procedural scaling maze with decisions to be made - on how you progress. Environment would be dark, water, madness (due to dark/harsh theme and infinite struggle), chaos filled - with new focus on some huge bosses Leviathans (which Metamorph might've been preparation for).

Sorry this is not detailed, but this is something that came to my mind on boring meeting at work. B)

Here's what i think society is telling men

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:20

If you are a young adult like me, then i think you'd agree with the following statements : Sarcasm, cynicism used.

  1. If you are pro intellectualism, naive, hard working good young men and want to be the best version of yourself, then rest assured that you will be shamed and bullied until you follow pop trash culture that don't give you any value.

  2. Through social media, knowing that the majority of you are introverts, we are always working hard around the clock to make you feel like you're missing out and need stupid, time wasting, non value or principal holding friends who are either trouble or narcissists. As the saying goes, books are for lossers. So you can blame yourself for being depressed

  3. We want you to have the best girlfriend, so to spice up the experience, we elude them into Whore Cuture so you only see overly sexualized, non attainable beauty girls, to pay for their expensive needs and their psychopathic consumer manners.

  4. If you are still at school by any chance, and still didn't realize that the one of the most dangerous men are the ones who control their sexual urges, then rest assured that only the Whore Culture girls and drugs are surrounded around you, to fail time and time again, not because we teach you anything worth a f*ck ! But because you wouldn't be patient with our increasingly student debts and bullshit. Especially if you are REALLY intelligent.

  5. Be confident that once you have a job, we only support corrupt, bully, jealous, suppressive, sociopaths. And if we support you by mistake, then know it's because you are the hard working naive person that we don't want to loss, yet.

  6. Traditional femininity in general just like traditional masculinity, does not serve us anymore. So be at ease knowing once you want to marry up, we'll provide you the worst partner of the worst. The lack of giving a f*ck about your mental health, which is essential, will reduce the risk of you criticizing your wife and stressful environment, and if god forbid you did, then ask uncle Steve there still paying child support and disgraced by us The Society.

I made a list of 10 before but by mistake i discarded it lol so here is it is. What's your thoughts ? PS: English is not my first language, so sorry for any grammatical errors.

My awesome career is destroying my marriage, family, and social life

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:18

So the problem is I feel like my job is ruining my life and I don't have an option to leave this career for several years.

I (29F) have worked very hard for all my life to get a job that is a pretty great one both financially and to help further my career. My job is extraordinarily stressful for many reasons. To list a few (and to say it frankly) - my coworkers are either lazy, incompetent, rude, immature or a combination of these traits; it's an extraordinary toxic work environment; it requires me to be there at strange hours - which means many, many sleepless nights and difficult days; and it just generally causes me to have a lot of stress and anxiety.

I've learned a lot... maybe too much about the people I love in that time. My best friend (29F) let me know that, despite the fact that I'm constantly bending over backwards for her and helping her out, she will have to "take breaks from me" aka disappear from my life for months at a time because she can tell I'm stressed and it stresses her out. My husband is constantly on edge with me and yelling at me about minute things like whether or not I vacuumed, washed his laundry, or made his lunch in the small window of free time I have.

My husband asked me to stop telling him about my day at work because it makes him feel sad or anxious.

Most hurtfully, my dad reached out to me and asked me to "distance myself" a bit from my family because my busyness causes them to "worry about me".

The worst thing of all is these people are so kind and nice and sweet to me when I'm having a good day. I'm starting to feel like my family, husband, and friends are all fair-weather friends. They'll only there for me when I'm happy.

I'm looking for advice on how to deal with this. If you could link any books or media that might help me that would be much appreciated. Also general life advice or wisdom would help greatly. Thank you.

**Before people mention it I did take the proper route of seeking help from a medical professional about my sadness about this and basically he told me I'm not crazy and he believes I'm really struggling, but I'm not in need of medication or counseling... so too bad for me right?! Haha.

Tl;dr The people I love in my life are turning their backs on me when I'm struggling and I feel lost and alone.

Casual Unranked, a proposal for Elwono’s proposal

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:17

TL;DR: Have a separate unranked game mode which doesn’t count for unlocking ranked (as Elwono described) and no leaver penalty would be great for new players and would destroy the incentive to smurf to stomp on them. If a player leaves, they are replaced by a bot. If an allied player dies, they can take over the allied bot for the duration of their death. This removes the power of smurfs, since a player can quit if they aren't having fun. Doesn't really matter if people quit, it just turns into coop against bots which is perfect for newbies anyways. You get replaced by a bot in CS:GO as well, and can control it if you die. Many more details, read on if interested

Background

In Elwono’s video, one of the key ideas he put forward was for a safe environment for new players to get into the game, and avoid issues with smurfs. His proposal was for an unranked game mode which does not count towards the 100 hours played requirement to play ranked on their smurfs. This runs as a new game mode, targeting these players. Ultimately Elwono’s suggestion was that it was basically identical to unranked as it is now, but it just doesn’t count to the 100 hours requirement. I propose extending this idea, but also relaxing his requirement of leaver penalty.

My proposal is inspired by both his idea, but also the implementation in CS:GO regarding player leaving, along with other significant modifications and elaborations. There are also casual modes in Starcraft 2 that are relevant here.

This post is not trying to justify the reasons for smurfing, but Elwono’s point was that you can’t change this human behaviour if it is negatively impacting players, so you have to work around it. This post is concentrating on the new player experience in particular, but could be appreciated by other players as well, discussed further below.

The proposal

I’d call it the “Casual” game mode.

1) “Casual” does not contribute to unlocking ranked. This is Elwono’s original suggestion. Elwono’s point is that smurfs and alternate accounts want to unlock ranked on their accounts, and in the process they will stomp some new players. This avoids this scenario.

2) No penalty for leaving, you are replaced by a bot if a player leaves. Incentives to play past 5 minutes, and more incentives to not leave the game at all (explained further below in point 6). If an allied player dies, they can take over the allied bot for the duration of their death. Future extension possibility: Queuing for “Casual” gives you the option to join an ongoing game to replace a bot, which shows the current game state (time elapsed, hero you will replace and their items). You can choose to completely opt out of this option so you only queue and wait for a new match to start.

This removes the power of smurfs, since a player can quit if they aren't having fun with very minimal penalty. Onto the next game instead of getting stuck in this game. The point of the 5 minute restriction is to avoid people quitting quickly, wasting the effort and time of drafting and queuing. Fountain farming can no longer happen for very long, you just quit if you think it’s a waste of time. It doesn't really matter if people quit in this game mode, it just turns into coop against/with bots. It will be relaxed. It won’t be competitive. People will probably chat and make friends. Imagine!. It might have leavers, but the impact of them can be reduced.

Some inspiration here is from CS:GO. You get replaced by a bot in CS:GO as well if you leave, and teammates can control it when dead (refer to Appendix at the end). This is different to existing Dota games, since disconnected players get the option of being controlled by other players. I don’t think that is appropriate for this game mode, as any mode that is targeting new players should not have multi-hero control as an option (it is too overwhelming), as this could be open to abuse by a smurf, or even a veteran player who queues with their new player or low skill friend in this game mode, and asks them to leave to take them over.

The main thing is that they are maximizing the time they are having fun AND learning the game.

Also ideally, the bots get some love by Valve, and perhaps towards something as sophisticated as the Open AI bots but earlier in the training phase to get specific MMR bots. Given the skill rating tracking in this mode, the bot that replaces the person is strictly worse in their estimated skill level, so people aren't compelled to abuse someone to leave to get a bot. Good bots are a bonus in this proposal, they are not required, even the current bots will do.

3) Hidden MMR is still tracked for this mode specifically. “Casual” Matchmaking relies on MMR from other game modes as well, if that data is available, but winning or losing “Casual” does not update your MMR or matchmaking in any other format.

The point of this is that anyone can still queue this mode, and not worry about it affecting the matchmaking of future matches in other game modes. Also, to get similar skilled players in the same game if possible.

4) No need for surrender option. If you don’t want to keep playing, you just leave, the bot will take over. The other team can still get the general satisfaction and mechanics required to end the game (tower, high ground siege, team fight win, end game), but the end will just end up being against bots in some cases. But they are given an incentive to stay for the whole match (explained below in point 6)

Sure, some new players might miss out on going for those comebacks that make Dota 2 rich, but 1 hour+ long games with comebacks is also not conducive to giving new players that taste of Dota 2. Just let them quit, to start out. I think Turbo games aren’t a great place to play Dota 2 either, as it actually makes things more compressed, stressful and hard to absorb, compared to the slower paced and deliberative normal game mode. Turbo also rightly still has a leaver penalty, and the environment can be very competitive, so not the greatest place to get your feet wet.

5) If an account is detected as a smurf, it is banned from this mode until the MMR skill estimate has converged to their expected skill level.

If you want to play in this game mode, you have to use a main account where possible. Or if you made an alternate or smurf, you need to gimp your play style enough so you don’t flag the smurf detection (which might kick in, after one game). Both achieving the required goal. A smurf might play one game in this mode, but all the opponents might leave if they feel it is unfair, and they get banned from the mode due to smurf detection. If a veteran player queues with a new player, the matchmaker will try to give them a fair game. If your new player friend decides they aren’t having fun in that game because they are getting stomped (the opposite team average MMR will be much higher than them), they can just leave with their party, unless they can be convinced to stay. It might convince people to be a bit nicer to people? Who am I kidding. If a smurf makes an account, plays with their new friend, and gets their account banned, they have the option of gimping their play style next time they make a smurf so they don’t get banned from “Casual” to play with them, or they play with their main account and increase the skill level in the match to be more fair.

6) Positive reinforcement for not leaving at all. Some positive reinforcement for not leaving early. No penalty for leaving early. If you don’t leave the game before the end, you get “ancient essence”, based on the game length. If you leave the game, you get half the equivalent essence (or some other %) compared to if you stayed for the full match. If you leave the game in the first 5 minutes, you get zero ancient essence. You get a small bonus for winning. You are retroactively given full value “ancient essence” for the time you were in the game if you left a game with a detected smurf in it after 5 minutes (you will also get a notification that this happened).

You are rewarded with the ability to use these essences, in subsequent “Casual” games, to get a random cosmetic set for the hero you picked, equipped for that match only. It could be a more limited rotation as well, say up to rare items only. You roll this during strategy time, with strategy time being a maybe 10 seconds longer in “Casual”, and other players are notified that “ancient essence” was used and player X got set Y this match, and that they either “chose to equip it”, or “did not choose to equip it”. If you choose not to equip the set, you are refunded half of the essences that you used to roll, and you have your previous loadout for that hero. You have unlimited rerolls until you get a set you want or not. All new accounts and existing accounts are retroactively given a starting amount of “ancient essence”.

The logic for this system is that you want some incentive to hang around until the end of the game, but you don’t want it to be a leaver penalty. Rather, it is positive reinforcement. So you still have the potential for full length games, and ggs at the end, and comebacks. But you aren’t punished very much if you do choose to leave early.

You might wonder, why would I play unranked normals if I could just play this mode and gain a virtual currency and sometimes roll free cosmetics? Well, you’re a filthy casual then aren’t you? You play the other modes to be competitive (even unranked normals and leaver penalty becomes competitive), no leavers, stricter matchmaking.

To reiterate, the things you do not get in this mode:

  • Counting towards 100h of game time for ranked unlocking
  • Leave penalties, which reduces the competitiveness since people will leave more often
  • The high of winning in a strongly competitive environment
  • Full control of a disconnected player at all times, not just when you are dead

To most players of Dota, it will feel a bit more dull to play this mode. You probably have nice cosmetics anyways. You might play it with a new friend. You’d only play because you don’t want the leave penalty, and it has to be on a main account and not a smurf. It also gets players used to the fact that cosmetics exist, and that heroes might look different than what is expected.

Other potential target players?

This is a game mode designed for new players, but all players could use it. Who might be good to use it?

  • You have an uncertain amount of time free, but want to play the closest thing to normal Dota you can without the fear of leaver penalty on your behaviour score or matchmaking in the future.
  • You want to play a relaxing game mode with your new player friends. They have the option to quit if they are getting stomped, and trying something else to learn.
  • You just want to play a low stress, low competition game of Dota, where winning matters a little, but not much.

Appendix:

CS:GO example implementation for the bots:

A new feature implemented is that dead human players can take control of bots on their respective team, as long as the bot is not already being controlled by another player. However, stats, money, and obtained weapons will only be awarded to the bot and not the player controlling the bot. The player cannot return to spectating after starting to control a bot.

Source: https://counterstrike.fandom.com/wiki/Bot

In CS:GO, the bots are extremely dumb on purpose, so noone has an incentive to kick players to get the bot. In Dota 2, there is no such thing as a votekick (which I think is a good thing), but abusing players could still happen.

Anyone using typescript in lambdas? How do you debug crash logs?

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:10

I am looking to use typescript in AWS lambda. Our current stack in a production ready app is Javascript lambdas exposed through gateway, and all deployment is done using terraform. Due to high number of errors in types, the team is looking to use typescript in lambdas.

I have couple of questions regarding to TS in lambda environment.

  1. How do you transpile js files and how do you deploy? I know there are number of tutorials that use serverless framework, but we are using terraform and not looking to use another deployment framework.
  2. How do you debug any crashes? If deployed files are JS, how do you map cloudwatch logs to your TS code? Currently in our JS code this is not much a question.
  3. Is there any other tricky point we have to take care of in TS?

[VA] How long do wage theft claims usually take to process? Should I file in small claims?

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:04

I recently quit 2 weeks into a job due to a hostile (and hazardous!) work environment. I submitted a claim to VADOLI for the $130 and change I'm still owed by the bastard, but I'm not entirely sure how long it should take. Will I get any mail to let me know they got the paperwork?

Should I sue this guy in small claims? If so, when and how should I go about it?

Finally should I look into unemployment? I have another job, but it doesn't start until March. Would I qualify, even though I'm not actively looking for work? And if so, can I get compensated for the past month or so that I've been in limbo?

Thanks in advance for the help!

[Discussion] As non-trad student who didn't study hard sciences, will a structured post-bacc program help prepare me for the rigor of medical school?

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:02

I'm a current computer science student interested in switching to medicine, and I'll need a post-bacc (DIY or otherwise) to finish my prereqs. I have an okay GPA on a good upward trend (3.72 with a few 3.9s and a 4.0 recently) but grades for my computer science courses are driven more by projects than exams. There are still exams and quizzes, but it's a vastly different type of learning and academic environment than medical school (or from undergrad orgo/bio/etc.). I can't say I've ever needed to spend more than 20-30 hours a week on my courses, and I'm scared that this had made me complacent.

As someone who doesn't come from a hard sciences background, will taking prereqs through a post-bacc prepare me for the rigor of the medical school (at least partially, and assuming I actually get an acceptance of course)?

Getting back to socionics and rethinking my type. 40Q answered

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:01
Te Block

1. What is work in your opinion? Why do people go to work? Are there any parameters where you can distinguish whether you can do this work or not?

Work is a meaningful task that people perform to accomplish a certain goal. There are many reasons why people go to work, so to be more specific and less generic, I personally go to work because I want to establish myself in my field, become better, develop and learn. Work or job is also a huge part of my identity, so working is partly a part of my process of self discovery and self improvement.

I believe people do have talents and gifts that make them better at some jobs while they can perform worse at others. Nevertheless, potential is just one part of it. Learning, education and mastering an actual skill are equally, if not more important.

2. How do people determine the quality of work? How do you determine such quality? How well you can determine the quality of any purchase, do you pay any attention to it?

I think it can be determined by the time taken to get to job done and how throughout was the job complected. Whether it offers long term or short term solutions and whether it's globally or only locally useful. It's also important to think about how the work can help the field in the future and what novelties it can bring.

When it comes to purchase... I know I tried to sound all intelligent person above, but honestly? In real life I am a simpel person. I like new shiny things that look good. Even though I do realize that quality is important, I personally usually go for the image and a status of a brand rather than for the quality. Like I'm not even sure if I believe that Apple is good anymore and they are super expensive, but I still own a lot of Apple stuff, 'cause I think it looks cool.

3. There is a professional right next to you. You always see that you can't perform the way they do. Your feelings, thoughts and actions?

I'd probably feel like I could learn something from them, that they could help me work on my skills and become better. At the same time, I'd really have to swallow a huge load of my pride, because I really struggle when I have to admit I am not good at something wanna be good at. Sometimes, even when people give me advice, I feel like they attack my integrity and pride. When I work with someone who is more humble and sensitive to me, I am more willing to learn.

4. If you struggle to do something, what can you say about such a task? Tell us your next steps and give examples. Compare with actions of others in a similar situation.

I definitely do struggle with many things, but I am really confident at others. I know I have my own talents and skills and I know I am also weak at other areas. I don't really mind it, I think it's natural. I usually try to figure stuff out on my own, I do some research and I also like to try new things and approaches of doing something, just because it's fun. Only after I fail doing something by myself, I decide to ask for help. Usually it's a friend who I know is good at it.

5. You need to build a pyramid exactly like in Egypt. Your thoughts, feelings and actions?

Why would I do that? Aren't there enough pyraminds? What is the propose of this project? We haven't even really figured out the meaning of pyramids in Egypt and now we're building another ones? What year is it, 2500 B.C.? Nope, thank you.

Ti Block

1. General to specific, specific to general – what does it mean? Give examples.

General concerns a wider range of something. It can be broadly applied in different aspects of one field or in possible multiple fields. Specific is something that only concerns a small portion of something, it might say a lot about one thing or go into many details about very few things.

2. What does "logical" mean? What is your understanding? Do you think that it correlates with the common view? Is it is easy for you to be logical?

I think logical is something that can connect different ideas efficiently, shows how they can work together and create a balance. It's about finding different pieces and then making them into a perfect big picture, while every piece has its specific place.When you miss one or misplace it, you never get the picture or you get it wrong and it won't be as pretty as it should.

3. What is hierarchy? Give examples of hierarchies. Do you need to follow it? Why or why not? Give example of hierarchy of systems, what is it?

Hierachy places things/people/opinion/ideas/whatever into a system. It categorizes it by their specific characteristics based on which they belong in a certain place within the system.

There are hierarchies that need to be followed, while others are more abstract and social. I do believe that the whole universe is very logical and rational, or people like to see this logic and create it. Our minds just strife to put things into boxes, categorize them, give them a tag. Whatever you call it, everything basically is a hierarchy. Even when people say "fuck the system", they still do follow a system in their minds, created by their own consciousness. People can't live without this.

4. How do you explain fractions on the dial of the clock?

There's a 24 hour concept of time. It represents the time it takes our planet, the Earth to turn around its own axis. Each fraction represents an amount of time it takes the earth to spin. The biggest fractions are hours, the smaller ones are minutes and seconds. One hour has 60 minutes, one mintue has 60 seconds.

5. Do you frequently feel the need to structure information? For what purpose? How do people usually do it? How do you do it?

I do love to structure information when I work, and I need to be productive. When it comes to organizing my time and work tasks, I love to categorize every information I gathere and decide when and how I can use it.

Se Block

1. Can you press people? What methods do you use? If so, how does it happen?

I'm not very good at this. My whole life I have been told that I look like this sweet, cute innocent little girl. I used hate this to the core. I had these though, strong, independent female role models and I tried really hard to be like them. But the harder I tried, the more I failed. I thought that there was something wrong with me, that I was too weak and I couldn't really toughen up. Now when I am an adult, I've actually embraced looking soft and innocent and I came to peace with my girly side. A lot of people find it nice and even attractive. It also attracts a lot of strong people, who are willing to help me. I've learnt that people are more willing to help me or do as I say, when they see this soft side of myself. I guess it makes them feel like they do stuff for me from their own will rather than the will of someone else.

2. Are there strategies of attack? Can you use them? When is it justified? Do you think it's ok to occupy someone else's territory? In what situations?

No. No. Never. And no. Next question...

3. How do you protect yourself and your interests?

I'm a very private person. I don't let many people into my inner circle and I only share limited amount of info about myself with other people. When I get to know people better and I see that we have common interests and views, only then I decide to share some more.

4. Describe your behavior in situations of opposition and if you have to use some force?

Despite everything the first paragraph says, I can get angry and argumentative when I get triggered. I'm generally pretty stubborn and I'm vocal about many of my opinions. So, when people argue with me, I just argue back. I like to use my knowledge and info that I've learnt to show them, why they are wrong and I'm right.

5. Do others think of you as a strong person? Do you think you are a strong person?

I'm a goal oriented person. Sometimes, when I really want something and people around are being jerks about it, I can put up with a lot of it and swallow it with pride. Like at my previous job we had this really bad boss who used to yell and insult his employees and many of them even left the work crying. Once he tried it with me, but all I gave him was a silent smile and I continued doing my job as well as I could. I didn't want to give him the cry he wanted to see, 'cause he was an idiot. Also I didn't follow any of his instructions, 'cause he was just a bad boss, and I knew better.

1. What is beauty? Do you change your opinion about beauty? Does your understanding correlate with the generally accepted notion? What goes beyond the generally accepted notion?

I think that beauty is very personal and subjective. There are so many different styles and aspects of it, it can't really have just one clear definition.

I personally like things and people who look different and original. I like it when something goes against this general idea of beauty on propose and presents something that might be seen as ugly as something beautiful. I think it's amazing when we can find beauty in ugliness.

I like a lot of extravagant and dark aesthetics for example.

2. Is there a template of understanding what beautiful means for everyone to use? Is there such a term as "classic beauty"? If so, what is it?

Of course there's a term like classic beauty. It's someone or something who/that is considered to be attractive/pretty by the majority of population. However, majority doesn't mean everyone, there always will be some people who might disagree with it being beautiful.

3. How do you create your comfort and coziness? How do others evaluate your skill in doing so? Do you agree with them?

I like to feel comfortable and cozy. I like to decorate my apartment, buy candles, play with design and style. I do believe that your own apartment reflects your personality, that's why I didn't let anyone else design it and I did it all by myself using stuff that is close to my heart.

Nevertheless, my problem is that I am an extremely messy person. There is stuff lying around in my apartment and I am not a clean one either. So sometimes, my environment looks like a dump with pretty things in it. I honestly, don't care enough to change it.

4. How do you pick your own clothes? Do you follow fashion? Why? Do you know how to select clothes for different types of figures?

I do care about fashion a lot and I think I have a natural gift for spotting trends, but I also like to have my own personal style. What I love to do the most, is combining what's trendy with the pieces that I personally love. It creates a unique style that is modern and fresh, yet it's still me and very personal.

5. Tell us how you'd design any room, house or an office. Do you do it yourself or trust someone else to do it? Why?

I believe I have already answered this, when I said that I designed my own apartment. I absolutely love to do these things, when I have my own creative freedom and can use my sense of aesthetics and imagination.

1. Is it acceptable to express emotions in public? Give examples of inappropriate expression of emotions.

I think it's acceptable to a certain degree, but nobody likes drama queens, right? I for example, try to control my expressions of emotions in public, but they usually take the best of me and I often become loud and passionate, even when I don't mean to. People usually say that I'm a very expressive and lively person, even when I do control myself in public. I used to suffer because of this at school, 'cause I have always been this very expressive person without really realizing it, it was super subconscious and real, but many people thought I was being theatrical or fake. I worked really hard on being less expressive.

2. Think of such negative emotional states as sadness, gloom, and despondence.

--Can you, at your own will, enter these states? If not, then when do you feel them?

Yes, I can enter them as I please. Usually art helps me to feel them, music, films, paintings etc., they all do extreme whole lot to my emotions. It is easier to enter them than to leave them though. I'm generally a very melancholic person and these states come more naturally to me than to other people.

--How long can you stay in such states?

Oh, wow. LONG! I mean... really such emotions are so strong and hard to unfeel. They do get under my skin and walk with me long after a triggering situation.

--How can you withdraw from them?

Again, usually art works. Upbeat music like metalcore or pop-punk usually makes me feel a lot better. Then I like to watch silly TV shows like The Simpsons or Big Bang Theory to make myself feel better and remind me on the fact that life can be simple and fun.

--Can they be pleasant, soothing?

Oh, yes! I am a huge masochist at my core. Sometimes, I get so deep into these feelings, they drive me crazy, but I love how strong and real they feel. They can take control over my whole body and brain, and it can actually be soothing at some points. Happiness is more scattered and all over the place for me, which can be tiring sometimes. Sadness is just, deep, calm, steady.

--How do you feel after you have experienced them?

I believe I've just explained it very vividly.

3. How quickly can you change emotional state? To what side – positive or negative?

It's easier for me to feel negative emotions, I guess it sounds sad, but it's not sad for me, it's natural, It's who I am. Negative feelings stay with me much longer than the positive ones. Usually feeling happy is a hard work for me, like I need to watch myself not to fall back into feeling sad.

4. What emotional state is usual for you? Does your internal emotional state correlate with what you show externally?

Usually, I feel a little apathetic with a dose of hope and expectation. It's like I feel negative about most things, but then I'm like, I'll definitely meet or see someone or something else who will be perfect and great and interesting and I can't wait to see it/them.

This feeling of things being imperfect and disappointing in the here and now, combined with my hopes and expectations, make me feel a lot of nervous energy. An energy that actually makes me a person who is impatient and kinda fast. Like there's always something pushing me to do something, be somewhere...

Then I also often feel nostalgic, melancholic, but it's this warm melancholy. It's like the world has saturated colours, and it's a little sad but colourful too. It's like a warm familiar blanket, that hugs me and understands me.

5. Tell us about your moods over the last day.

Yesterday was actually very weird. I had bad dreams about being trapped in a room with this really heavy and unpleasant atmosphere, so I woke up with a really bad mood. Dreams can mess my mood up for the whole day and that's basically what happened yesterday. I felt scattered in a bad way, like I couldn't really concentrate and I felt like I was losing control over myself for some reason. I even binged ate on some crappy junk food, I alway eat when I feel really uncomfortable and stressed out.

My mood got better when I went to work and my boss told me, I had done a good job. It calmed me down a little and I didn't feel so scattered anymore.

Then, when I met with my best friend for wine, I felt much better and we had a good chat, so I went to bed feeling relaxed.

1. Tell us how did you build relationships with others over the last day.

I actually gotta admit I had been a little neglectful of my relationships. I don't have as much time to hang out with my friends and visit family, 'cause I work, I have hobbies and then I feel like I know so many people who want to meet and hang out, I sometimes don't know with whom should I hang out first. I actually only have few close friends and I'm sure other people know twice as many people as I do, but I'm not good at time management and I easily feel overwhelmed by too many friends/people around me.

Yesterday, I met with my best friend and we shared a bottle of wine together. We talked about how we want to travel. What destinations should we visit this summer. Then we talked about our common friends and their lives. And after that, we talked a lot about music that we both listen to, our favorite artists and concerts that will take place nearby and which ones should we visit...

Then I even wrote my mom on messenger, even I never do it and when I got home, I hugged my partner, but he was already asleep. That's so much about my social life.

2. What is sympathy? When do you need to express it? When is it advised not to? How do you express it?

I don't think sympathy has rules. You either feel it or you don't. It's a very personal and spontaneous thing. I think it's about fitting yourself into another person's shoes, feeling what they feel.

I never express sympathy, when I don't feel it, I think it's fake and dishonest and emotions should never be dishonest.

Usually, I express it by saying, how I feel about the situation a person is in. Then I try to figure out whether he or she feels the same way and find a common ground of our emotions on which we can build and share our feelings, perhaps even find a solution or a cause of their emotions.

3. Are there any standards of behavior for interpersonal relationships in society? If so, do you adhere to them? Do people always have to maintain them? Why?

Of course there are standards, many of them. I am a person with a mild social anxiety, I don't flip out when I meet people, but often I do feel uncomfortable and lost, wondering whether I said or did the right thing.

These standards help me a bit to understand whether my behavior is correct or not, and I feel much more at ease, when I can follow them. That sometimes makes me feel uptight, I have been told that I seem uptight by some people in the past.

Of course there are situations when these rules do not apply. Many people can't see them or don't think they really matter. I usually try to adapt to it and observe how people around me prefer to behave.

4. What does moral mean? What is immoral? How do you understand these terms and does your understanding correlate with the others? How can you evaluate the correctness of your own understanding?

I think people should create their own codes of morality. Of course there are things like killing or hurting someone on purpose, which we all know is bad, but other than that... There are many things that are considered to be moral by some people, while they are viewed as immoral by others.

I for example think, it's immoral to eat dead animal, while others prefer a steak for their dinner. Or I think it's immoral to waste drinking water, while others shower for 30 minutes...

My morality is based on compassion and empathy towards all the living beings and organisms. Not just humans, but also animals and the nature. I think we are all a part of this huge beautiful living breathing organism, and we should work together in unselfish ways to preserve and improve our society and the environment we live in.

5. Somebody is giving you a negative attitude – what is your reaction? Could you show your own negative attitude toward someone else? If so, how? Could you feel ill-disposed towards somebody for a long time? How easily do you forgive people?

I'm not good at dealing with this. Usually, when I see someone being negative towards me, I act with niceness and politeness. I usually hope it makes them realize they act like jerks and change their behavior towards me. If that doesn't work, I simply ignore them and pretend they do not exist.

1. Is there a meaning of life? In what? Is it the same for everybody?

I've struggled with meaning a lot. I used to be obsessed with it and I still mildly am. I had this huge philosophical crisis when I was around 19 - 20, and I tried to find my answers in religion, spirituality and philosophy. I might be an idealist and a dreamer, but I'm also a person of reason and rational thinking. Religions and spirituality did not work for me, but philosophy did. I found myself a lot in Nietzsche. It actually helped a lot to see that there was a person who struggled with meaning just like I did and then, found some in something that can seem as an extreme version of self improvement.

I think, everyone should find their own meaning. For some, it's religion, for others it's helping people or building new inventions. It really can be anything that fills your life with hope and makes it a little less empty.

I found my own personal meaning in being socially active. I see so many things in our society that are wrong, cruel or rigid and I do my best to change them. I have a voice and I use to it talk and write about social issues and injustices that concern all of us. Only by acknowledging what's wrong, a true change can take place. My meaning is also in creating my own pieces of art, pieces, that speak about things dear to my heart and a pieces that can make people feel, think and move.

2. When you meet a stranger, what can you say about them right away? How do you know what this person is all about? Does it take long to understand someone's traits?

If I have a one really excellent strength, it is this one. I read people very easily. I am not sure what it is, but everyone has an essence, a vibe or an energy, whatever you call it, it's the same thing. I approach people based on this energy and basically always I'm right about them.

Then there are other signs like their style of clothing that can tell you a whole lot about someone. When you can read those subtle signs in their choosing of colours for example, you can easily paint the whole picture. I've never studied this, it just comes really naturally to me.

3. What is imagination? Do all people have imagination and can fantasize? What is your fantasizing like?

Imagination is an escape from this gray and stereotypical reality. Imagination is the beauty and passion you can create in your own mind. It is a gift that everyone has, but not everyone can use it the right way.

I love to turn the reality button off and the fantasy button on and I can do it in a spur of a moment. I can totally block myself from anything that happens around me and live in my own dream world. It often happens to me even at work. I just space out a leave planet Earth.

To me, fantasy is like watching a TV, but I'm the main character in all of my films. I can make myself whoever I want to be a queen, a feminist, a rockstar, and the reality just stops to matter anymore. There is this film in my mind that I love to watch and imagine myself in different scenarios of life.

4. What do you think of people (or yourself) who distinctively stand out in a crowd, differ from others? What is a measure of such distinction, how can this difference be feasible and how not?

They are real, true, honest. Life would be nothing without rebels, without people who are not afraid to be different and change things. Can you imagine the steady and boring world without people like this? World needs innovators, creative people who see things differently and can help us improve and become better.

For me, it's a lot about thinking out of the box. Coming up with original, personal and novel view points and ideas. I think this could happen in any category from art or fashion to physics and chemistry. Novelty should be welcome in all areas of our lives. Otherwise, life would be the most boring thing.

5. Ideas do not have to be correct in order to be good. What's your attitude towards this statement?

Correct things are so boring! Trial and error is the best way to test things out and see whether they work. The process of discovering and trying new things out is so exciting itself, it doesn't need to be anything else.

1. How people change? How do you feel about those changes? Can others see the changes?

People change over time, some changes are internal, which are harder to see, some are external which are easy to see. Life forms us, it doesn't only happen when we're kids, it's a process that happens throughout our whole lives, whether we're aware of it or not. There are situations and experiences that can change our whole personality, then there are others that can only change these tiny bits of it, but in the end can mean a lot to us.

I like changes, I think they are exciting and interesting. I always force myself to change, to become a better person each day. I think it's important to keep moving and changing, otherwise people just end up being blunt and stuck in their ways.

For me, life can be really boring and empty, when no change happens for a long time. I always await something new to happen, because it brings spark and passion. And I often push myself and others around me towards these changes and discovery of new things.

2. What is time? How do you feel time? Can you waste time?

Time is an abstract concepts that has tangible effects. It helps people to measure how long something takes, and how a thing A leads to a thing B. In our understanding it is linear, but it doesn't really have to be.

I feel time passing, sometimes when I have a good time it passes quickly. When I have a bad time, it passes slowly, it's very subjective. I think our feeling of time, helps us know when it's the right moment to say something or do something. It's a just thing your gut tells and then you decide to follow it or not.

We only have a limited amount of time on this planet. Some have more, some have less. I think it's safe to say that we waste it, when we do not use it to do something that either makes us happy, makes us better or makes us improve.

3. Do you need help creating forecasts and determining how something will end? Do you trust those forecasts?

I very often can somehow feel how things will develop and how will they end. Sometimes, even prophetically really. I think my ability to predict these things really balances on the thin line between something that can be logically explained and something, that remains a mystery even to my own self.

When I was younger, I used to have dreams that came true later. I don't have them as often anymore, but they still happen from time to time. I also often experience these sudden inspirations that tell me that something will happen and it really happens.

It's a little scary sometimes.

4. Are you normally late? How do you react if someone is late?

Usually, I adapt my time management to others. When I'm about to meet with someone, who is usually late, I'm late too. When I know I'll deal with someone who is punctual or I'm about to head to a formal meeting, I arrive either early or on time.

Nevertheless, I often find myself feeling either lazy or like I have a lot of time, even when in reality I have very little time. I often put thing off until the last possible moment, and then I find myself being stressed out and forgetful about a lot of details.

5. Imagine the situation where you agreed to meet with someone. Your feelings and actions:

a) 20 minutes before the meeting starts,

It's ok, I still do have a lot of time to arrive. I'd probably just head out for the bus or something, or choose to walk, 'cause I really like walking and I'm a fast.

b) 5 minutes before the meeting starts,

I'd probably end up being stuck in traffic or waiting for the bus, 'cause I never really check their schedule. I'd become kinda nervous and wishing I'd have gotten ready faster.
